Metaliferi Mountains are just a group of the Apuseni Mountains and can be recognized by being covered by forests to the top. The whole area they cross is of a striking, savage beauty that seemed untouched by the time. Also, another special feature of the Apuseni Mountains is the scattered villages and the houses of people who are situated at high altitudes, but the greatest wealth of this area, the Brady area, is the gold, and the route of this hiking takes us right in the footsteps of the former gold mine and the hill which, most likely, he still conceals his treasure.

In Brad area there is no time for boredom because suddenly you opened your eyes and see yourself surrounded by hills covered by forests, by locals wich are very welcoming and desiring to tell a story to travelers you will definitely feel comfortable and ready to go out there and find out all that this wonderful area has to offer, and to begin with a hike To Piatra Lată, as the locals say, what is actually a rock at the highest altitude in The Village of Luncoiu de Jos, Hunedoara County and where you will have a great panorama over the entire area. It's worth every step you'll take, and when you think that the local people are often traveling over the summer to get to their crops, you have to trust that it deserve the whole way, though it's not a very difficult one.

Author’s recommendation

It is recommended that you have a backpack with some water and a few snacks and even a rain coat in in case of an unexpected summer rain. Do not hesitate to visit the village Tourist Center (Luncoiu de Jos) to get a better picture of the places and habits of people in the village. At the tourist center you will find, literally, a small museum that describes very well the history, but also the present and the habits of the locals nowadays.
